How To Hide Your Electronics

How To Hide Your Electronics -canarystreetcrafts

I finally figured out a great way to hide my electronics (TV cords and DVD player), and I love it!!!  We built our new house 3 yrs ago and had the builder place the outlets high on the wall so we could hang our televisions.  However they failed to place the electric outlet with the rest, so the tv hung nicely on the wall, but we had  the cords running down the wall to the outlet.  Unsightly to say the least.    My husband wanted to just leave things alone, but no way I was going to settle for that.  So while my husband was at work I hired a family friend to add an outlet directly behind the table which is  under the television.  Better to ask forgiveness than permission, right!
